Blancpain Villeret Date Moonphase

Truth be told, it's pretty hard to find a decent ladies' watch for under $10,000. It should then come as no surprise that women have turned to wearing men's watches instead (cue the world's smallest violin, I know). Your typical "ladies'" watch tends to be covered in diamond chips, contain a quartz movement, and cost many times more than it should. But there are a few options out there that prove otherwise. This is one of those watches.

The Villeret Date Moonphase is the latest from Blancpain, currently best known for making dive watches such as the Fifty Fathoms – the complete opposite of this watch. But unlike many of its competitors, this little ladies' watch makes a strong argument with its steel case and in-house automatic movement, all for under $13,000. It is available in red gold with or without diamonds, with or without a bracelet, and stainless steel with or without diamonds. I went with the stainless steel version without diamonds as it was the least expensive model and the most practical.
